Beautifully feminine and universally complex, Noble VII Cosmos Flower is a bold new offering from Clive Christian, the venerable house’s very first gourmand fragrance. Inspired by the nobility of England’s Queen Anne period and the wondrous gardens that graced the homes of royals and elites, Cosmos Flower is built around the titular flowers’ sumptuously rich and mouthwatering chocolatey scent. A delicious blend of sweet benzoin and caramel in the base is given a chypre-like twist with bitter cocoa, dry amber and a hidden touch of leather that unfurls as the fragrance warms. The bouquet at the heart wraps around a deep and fruity rich plum accord that fuses with the intensity of ylang-ylang, the sensuality of jasmine, the fruitiness of osmanthus and the cosmos flower itself. True, natural cocoa delivers both creamy gourmand notes but also a dark bitter edge, enhancing the fruity character detectable in the opening, while a touch of fiery rum brings warmth and delight. Extraordinarily sophisticated, and unapologetically British, this gorgeous gourmand represents both a bold new step and also the continuation of the grand tradition of Clive Christian.
